Jiwaka leaders push for separate province

By PEKU PILIMBO

LEADERS in the Jiwaka area believe they should have a province of their own, separate from Western highlands.
They believe their case for a new province is as strong as the Hela province push.
The Jiwaka comprises the Waghi (North and South Waghi districts), Jimi and Kambia (East and West Kambia).
Leaders from the area have appointed former Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Papua New Guinea, Nick Kuman, as chairman of the working committee that is behind the move.
Mr Kuman told reporters in Parliament last week that the push for a Jiwaka province has been going on for some time. A proposal had been submitted to the Electoral Boundaries Commission for consideration.
With Mr Kuman were North Waghi MP Michael Mas Kal and Jimi MP, Francis Kuna.
The proposal sent to the EBC was signed by leaders which include former Western Highlands premier Philip Kapal, former Deputy premier Yuants Kaman, former members Sir Thomas Kavali, William Ekip Wii, Er Tal, and Sir Tumun Dupre and current council presidents and all local level government councillors.
Jiwaka has a population of more than 157,000 people.
The Hela people in Southern Highlands are also fighting a similar battle.

This has been talked about / rumoured for quite some time now but it has never been in the spot light for the government to do anything about it. I reckon it needs a good push from as low as the people of Jiwaka up to the leaders who are voicing the move....
We have the resources, the man power, and the population to attain this but first we need to organise ourselves and give it a harder push or it will never happen...
I hate to go up to Hagen these days ... the bus ride itself up there is a nightmare esp with the road being ugly :-(

I think we have been overlooked by the Hageners enough. We need a province of our own. Even Hagen town is no more safe for the grassroots.

Kimbirye, like you said, I think it needs more weight on the push.
Tingting blg mi tasol. Ga pende pu se pisam mal ninam.
